High-Rise: Neue Trailer, Stills, Poster, Production-Design-Details

Jede Menge neue Bits zu einem der vielleicht besten Flicks des Jahres, Ben Wheatleys Verfilmung von J.G.Ballards „High-Rise“. Ich hab’ den Film neulich bereits gesehen (danke an die Einladung an dieser Stelle) und das Ding ist tatsächlich ziemlich großartig, narrativ speziell, sehr zeitlos und mit grandiosen Bildkompositionen, die eine superätzende Gesellschaftskritik formen.

Der Film bleibt tatsächlich tagelang hängen, eindeutige Assoziationen beim gucken: Kubricks „Clockwork Orange“ und Ferreris „Das große Fressen“, beides jetzt nicht die schlechtesten Referenzen. Ich bin ziemlich begeistert, muss den aber nochmal sehen, Deutschlandstart am 30. Juni. Jedenfalls:

1.) Ein neuer, schicker Trailer aus Frankreich.
2.) Ein toller Artikel über das großartige Production-Design (der Artikel verrät implizit ein paar Details aus dem Film, Spoilerwarnung.)
3.) ’ne Spotify-Playlist mit „Music inspired by the Film“ (just wait until you hear Portisheads Cover of Abbas „S.O.S.“ – it will blow your mind. It's not featured in the Playlist, I should add.)
4.) Total schicke neue (animierte) Poster
5.) Jede Menge Stills (hier bitte „Hat mir der Verleih exklusiv zur Verfügung gestellt“-Gefasel vorstellen)

Trailer:

Dr. Robert Laing moves into a new state-of-the-art apartment 2 miles outside of London. Seeking anonymity he soon discovers that the building’s residents are unlikely to leave him to his own devices. As he tries to negotiate his way around the social dynamics of the building it becomes apparent that Laing’s sanity is at risk amongst the booze, sex and anarchy within the building.

Creative Review: Inside High-Rise

1Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, looks at mid-70s Britain through the prism of an ultra-modern tower block. Adapted from JG Ballard’s 1975 novel by Amy Jump, the film follows Dr Robert Laing (played by Tom Hiddleston) as he adjusts to his new life as a tenant on the 25th floor and explores the relationships between the building’s various social groups and the tribal mentalities that emerge as the tower gradually descends into chaos. While working families live on its lower levels and aspirant professionals reside halfway up, a wealthy elite is confined to the uppermost floors – a structure that does not last long.

To help realise this unique world, envisioned by production designer Mark Tildesley, graphic artists Michael Eaton and Felicity Hickson created a legion of objects and products and several type treatments for the film’s locations: one for the high-rise itself, with its supermarket, gym, spa and swimming pool; a house font for the building’s architect, Anthony Royal; and signage for Laing’s place of work, the School of Physiology.
